For Shabbat Naso (Numbers 4:21- 7:89), services are conducted in SABA, the maqam used for the circumcision ceremony, as per ALL Aleppo sources. One reason is simply due to the words "Lissbo SABA" (Hebrew: ‘army’) being mentioned in Numbers 4:23. A deeper explanation, however, is due to the connection between Sota (unfaithful wife) mentioned in Numbers 5, and the circumcision. The Berit Mila serves as a protection against promiscuity and infidelity so that one will never find themselves in an unfaithful marriage. Being that this maqam is associated with the circumcision, it is also connected here in order to remind us to conduct our personal affairs properly. Sephardic Pizmonim Project,
